Monday next, 4th June, is another big day for the club with the staging of our Mini Marathon. Now in its third year it has grown from strength to strength and we welcome the continued support of the Lisheen Mines our sponsors for the occasion. The race commences at 3pm from Moyne Sportsfield and is open to male and female participants who can walk, jog or run the 10k route.
The route is fairly flat, stewards at all the major crossroads and two water stations as well as medical back up. The race will finish on the track in Moyne Sportsfield which will provide a safe environment for all and where each participant will be presented with a specially commissioned medallion to mark their achievement. The first three men and ladies home will receive monetary prizes with a number of down-the-field spot prizes randomly selected before hand on finishing places.
Refreshments will be served for all afterwards in the Moyne AC Indoor Facility and everyone is welcome. Off road parking will also be available and we would request that there is no parking on the road in and around the vicinity of Moyne Sportsfield.
Entry forms are still available for download here and can be posted to our secretary Rosemary Cleere along with the entry fee of €12 with final postal entries on Friday. Entries will also be taken on the day with no additional cost but entries will be taken up to 2.30pm only. No further entries will be taken after this time so it is advisable to come along early.
We would also ask that all our stewards are treated with respect as all are volunteering their time for your enjoyment.
We wish all entrants the very best of luck and hope they have an enjoyable day. We would also encourage those people living along the route to show your support for the athletes as they pass. As safety of our entrants is paramount we hope anyone travelling in the area on the day would be mindful of the event and to drive with caution especially between the times of 2pm to 5pm when the area will be a hive of activity.
A club meeting will take at 8.30pm on Wednesday night to finalise the preparations for Monday and there will also be a meeting of all stewards on Friday night at 8.30pm to familiarise themselves with their jobs etc.
